It’s been awhile since I’ve had my camera out. I hit a dead zone of sorts, what with the crappy winter that transitioned right into a heat wave and drought overnight. But then it rained a little Thursday and a bit more on Friday. On Saturday, I looked out into my little yard and found these lilies had popped up on long, tall stems. I had to take photos, and I set out to walking around my yard snapping away. I looked up to find a robin sitting on the roof not paying me any mind, and then Lucy, the neighbor’s dog calmly watching me.
The best camera is the one you have with you, and last Thursday, the iPhone was it. It was a remarkable storm with a lot of lightning and thunder, but little rain. Once it passed overhead, the sunset caught the rain to create a stunning double rainbow. But, to my surprise, the camera caught a flash of lightning, something I’d never managed to capture before. Sharing the moment with Odin made it all that much more joyful.
